Burmese cat

The Burmese cat is a breed of domesticated cats descended from a cat, Wong Mau who was found in Burma in 1930 by Dr Joseph Thompson. She was brought to San_Fransisco[?] where she was bred with Siamese_cats.

The Burmese is a foreign shorthair, catagorised by colour into brown, blue, chocolate, lilac, red, cream and tortoise shell. It yellow eyes and a very short satiny coat. They are heavier than they look, as they are very muscular. By the standards of pedigree cats they are long lived, many reaching 16 to 18 years.

Burmese have very strong voices and are very affectionate, forming a strong bond with their owners. Other characteristics include an inclination to climb curtains and sit on doors. They are also territorial and may hiss at uninvited guests. They are athletic, brave and humourous, and may show remarkable ingenuity.
